convenience receptacles, and the point
where it exits from the apparatus.
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
12. Use only with the cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer or sold with the apparatus. When
a cart is used, use caution when moving
the cart/apparatus combination in order
to avoid injury from tip-over.
13. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel. Servicing is required when the
apparatus has been damaged in any way,

perform safety checks to determine that the
product is in proper operating condition.
PCS150R Rack Installation (also see page 9)
To install the PCS150R in a rack:
• Carefully slide the PCS150R into a standard
19-inch equipment rack.
• When mounted in the rack, make sure appropriate hardware is used. ALL FOUR MOUNTING SCREWS MUST BE USED.
• This equipment is not designed to support
other devices. Do NOT stack other equipment
on the top of the PCS150R.
• Rear cabling must be dressed and supported
so that the weight of the cabling is not a strain
on the PCS150R connectors.
• MOUNTING OF THE EQUIPMENT IN THE
RACK SHOULD BE SUCH THAT A HAZARDOUS CONDITION IS NOT ACHIEVED DUE TO
UNEVEN MECHANICAL LOADING.
Rack-mount Considerations
A.Elevated Operating Ambient
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack
assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater
than room ambient. Therefore, consideration
should be given to installing the equipment in
an environment compatible with the maximum
ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the
manufacturer (see Specifications information
in this document).
(Continued on next page)
206-4157
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(Continued from previous page)
B.Reduced Air Flow
Installation of the equipment in a rack should
be such that the amount of air flow required
for safe operation of the equipment is not
compromised. To ventilate the system normally and avoid overheating, leave at least 1
inch (2.5 cm) on each side (including top and
bottom) of the PCS150R. Do NOT stack other
equipment on the top of the PCS150R.
C.Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit
and the effect that overloading of the circuits
might have on overcurrent protection and
supply wiring.
D.Reliable Earthing
Maintain reliable earthing of rack-mounted
equipment. Particular attention should be
given to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (e.g. use of
power strips).
206-4157
E. Mains Outlet Earthing
The apparatus with Class I construction must
be connected to a mains socket outlet with a
protective earthing connection.
PCS150R Installation on a Flat Surface
To install the PCS150R on a level surface (table
top, shelf, etc.):
• Install the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum operating ambient
temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer (see Specifications information in this
document).
• Place spacers or rubber feet (not provided) on
the bottom of the PCS150R.
• Carefully place the PCS150R on the level
surface.
• To ventilate the system normally and avoid
overheating, leave at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) on
each side (including top and bottom) of the
PCS150R. Do NOT stack other equipment on
the top of the PCS150R.

in a lodging site application.
Features
• Two output options: ASI or RF
• RF output channel programmable
• Remote programming capability via Ethernet
• Unit does not require local monitor, keyboard, or mouse connection
• Small, lightweight chassis
• 19-inch rack-mountable
• 1U height profile to minimize rack space usage

Typical System Installation
(see also Typical Setup Flow Charts and VPN Network Connections Overview diagrams)
1. If your system is using ASI output, make the following two connections; otherwise, go to
step 2.
• Connect a 75 ohm BNC-to-BNC coaxial cable between ASI OUT on the PCS150R and
ASI IN on the modulator.
Note: The BNC cable must be less than 30 feet (9.2 meters) in length.
• Connect an RF coaxial cable between IF OUT on the modulator and IF IN on the upconverter.
2. Connect one end of a CAT5 RJ-45 Ethernet cable to the ETHERNET-0 port on the PCS150R
rear panel, and connect the other end of the cable to the institution’s network.
3. Connect the PCS150R power supply to the POWER connector on the PCS150R rear panel.
4. Use the straight-through serial cable and, if necessary, the USB adapter to connect a PC to
the RS-232 port on the PCS150R rear panel. (This step will enable you to verify the network
connection once power is applied in step 6.)
5. Using HyperTerminal or an equivalent terminal emulation program on the PC, configure the
serial port as follows: Bits per second = 115200; Data bits = 8; Parity = None; Stop bits = 1;
Flow Control = None

6. Plug the AC power cord into a powered AC line receptacle. When power is applied, the
STATUS LED on the PCS150R front panel will light, and you will see boot-up messages on
the PC.
When the boot-up is complete, a System Information display identifies important information
about the PCS150R, including the unit serial number, hardware ID (firmware version), software versions, MAC addresses, and IP addresses, for example:

Local time: Wed May 18 16:08:12 CDT 2011
7. Check the Eth0 IP field in the display. By default, the PCS150R uses DHCP; thus, the DHCP
server assigns an IP address to the PCS150R once the PCS150R successfully connects to
the network. If the Eth0 IP field shows an IP address, the PCS150R is up and running on the
network. If the Eth0 IP field is blank, refer to Troubleshooting information on page 23.
8. Make the appropriate connection to the RF distribution system:
• ASI output: Connect the RF output on the upconverter to the RF distribution center
combiner, and balance the RF signal so that the Pro:Centric signal level at the TV(s) is
between 0 to +7 dBmV.
• RF output: Connect RF OUT on the PCS150R to the RF distribution center combiner, and
balance the RF signal so that the Pro:Centric signal level at the TV(s) is between 0 to +7
dBmV.
Caution: For proper system performance, the Pro:Centric signal level at the
TV input (ANTENNA IN) must be between 0 to +7 dBmV. Note that additional
equipment may be required to adjust the signal level.
9. Configure the ASI or RF output parameters in the Pro:Centric Server Admin Client. Refer to
the Pro:Centric™ Server Admin Client User Guide for further information.
Note: By default, the server output is enabled for QAM-B modulation (RF output).

PCS150R Configuration Options
This section describes configuration options for the PCS150R.
Note: Before you proceed with any additional server configuration, the system
should be installed and operating as described in the system setup procedure
on pages 11 and 12.
Also note that configuration updates will generally require that you reset the PCS150R. Make
sure to reset the unit when directed to do so.
Network and Communication Options
There are two options for establishing communication with the PCS150R:
• Direct connection to the PCS150R RS-232 port
Connect a PC to the RS-232 port on the PSC150R rear panel using a DB9 Male-to-DB9
Female RS-232 straight-through serial cable (Example: Cables Unlimited PCM-2100-06
serial cable) and, if necessary, a USB 2.0-to-serial DB9 adapter (Example: Cables Unlimited
USB-2920 adapter).
Using HyperTerminal or an equivalent terminal emulation program on the PC, configure the
serial port as follows:
−− Bits per second = 115200
−− Data bits = 8
−− Parity = None
−− Stop bits = 1
−− Flow Control = None
• Network connection to the PCS150R Ethernet port
Use an SSH client to establish communication with the PCS150R. The default network
setting for the PCS150R is DHCP, in which case the server assigns an IP address to the
PCS150R. If necessary, consult the network administrator to obtain the IP address that has
been assigned to the PCS150R.
Log In to the PCS150R
If necessary, consult the network administrator to obtain the “admin” user password before
proceeding.
1. Establish communication with the PCS150R using one of the communication options
described above. Once communication is established, you should see a login prompt.
2. At the pcs150r login: prompt, type admin and press Enter.
3. At the Password: prompt, type the admin password and press Enter.
4. At the Command > prompt, either:
• Press Enter to display the PCS150R Main Menu (see example on following page).
